StreamLine Program

448

Published on

The StreamLine Program was designed specifically for the lot owner who is trying to build a custom home from a distance and the unique demands they make.
By focusing on;
a predetermined process,
honest and open communication, and
an integrated team that has worked well together in the past,
We avoid the pitfalls most commonly associated with absentee building.
We have found that business people are looking for a businesslike approach to building a vacation home
The team collectively is working in the best interest of the homeowner

  3. 3. Introduction<br />
  4. 4. StreamLine Program Overview<br />The StreamLine Program is an integrated home design and building process focused on delivering the highest quality custom designed timber framed home that meets the aesthetic requirements, livability needs and budget parameters set forth by the customer.<br />
  5. 5. StreamLine Program Overview<br />The Program is primarily targeted at the absentee builder, building a vacation/retirement home in an amenitized community some distance from the owner’s primary residence.<br />The absentee builder faces unique challenges, trying to build a personalized home, on time and on budget, from a distance which makes regular personal visits impractical.<br />
  6. 6. The Challenge<br />Building any custom home is normally a challenging process. <br />It is the clients never ending battle of trying to stick to a predetermined budget while still trying to acquire the home of their dreams. <br />Additionally, the upper market buyer is predisposed to high levels of quality service. <br />Add to this already daunting task, the elements of time, distance and no clear process, and the challenges compound quickly. <br />For these reasons and more, most people who have completed this process will openly admit it was not an enjoyable experience and would not be repeated again.<br />
  7. 7. The Solution<br />The StreamLine Program was designed specifically for this upper market absentee builder and the unique demands they make. <br />By focusing on; <br />a predetermined process, <br />honest and open communication, and <br />an integrated team that has worked well together in the past, <br />We avoid the pitfalls most commonly associated with absentee building.<br />
  8. 8. StreamLine Integrated Team<br />The Client is a member of the team, not the information conduit or the referee, but a key team member.<br />
  9. 9. Typical Building Process<br />
  10. 10. Typical Building Process<br /><ul><li> Typically, the absentee builder becomes the project manager and information conduit for the entire team</li></li></ul><li>The Gap<br />Knowledge<br />Programming<br />Budget<br />In all projects their exists a gap between programming and budget.<br />Programming being the aesthetics and the finishes of the home and the budget being what the total cost is to have the programming that you desire.<br />We have found that this gap is directly correlated to knowledge of;<br />Design requirements<br />Site challenges<br />Material costs<br />Local trade costs<br />Finish options<br />The goal is not to eliminate the gap at the outset but to reduce it as quickly possible through process and communication.<br />
  11. 11. Typical Gap Closure<br />Knowledge<br />Expansion<br />Programming<br />Budget<br />Contraction<br />Programming<br />Budget<br />Programming<br />Budget<br />Reality<br />Programming<br />Budget<br />Project Outset<br />Architectural Design Phase<br />Contractor Pricing Phase<br />The Gap is typically painfully closed at pricing, once the full set of architectural drawings are complete.<br />
  12. 12. The Gap Trap<br />Reality<br />Programming<br />Budget<br />This information gap is typically closed only when the construction documents are completed by the architect and the contractor bids the job.<br />At this point, it is painful to close the gap because:<br />Significant monetary investments have been made<br />Significant time investments have been made <br />Client has already envisioned themselves in that house <br />The ways out of the gap trap are;<br />Pay the piper<br />Abandon the project<br />Cut, shrink, and redraw<br />This is expensive in time and money <br />Communication becomes difficult, he said/she said and in many cases the client becomes a referee between the contractor and the architect <br />
  13. 13. Keys to a Good Project<br />Based on our experience the keys to a good project are;<br />Process, preparation and planning coupled with honest communication about programming and budget<br />Lack of these lead to cost overruns, time delays, and frustration. <br />
